Self Defense for Self Determination November 14, 2018
Thank you for your interest in Self Defense for Self Determination: Intro to Self Defense and De-escalation Strategies.

This workshop will be led by Mamie Chow, who holds a 3rd degree black belt from Wild Crane Rising Martial Arts, a community-based school that trains in a contemporary style of Tae Kwon Do. Mamie's approach to self defense values social justice, preventing verbal and physical violence, and creating an encouraging space to practice self and community defense skills. In the last couple of years, we have seen an increase in hate crimes, harassment and bullying that targets every minority group -- it is vital for us to have safe spaces to practice how to assess and handle these situations so that we are better prepared if we become targets or witness others being targeted.

There will be ample time to strategize and practice dealing with challenging situations that have occurred or may occur on UC Berkeley's campus or classrooms. Upcoming workshops will feature:
-Increasing your awareness and confident body language
-Practicing verbal boundary-setting
-How to stay calm in stressful, potentially dangerous situations
-What to do when you see someone else getting harassed
-Important things to consider in assessing whether or not to get involved
-De-escalation strategies
-Practicing verbal de-escalation
-A range of physical tactics (such as using everyday items in your bag to protect yourself, defensive blocks and strikes)
